Linda Evangelista has come a long way from not using social media. Now, the Canadian-born 80s supermodel has utilized the medium to share the most shocking news regarding her personal life. The legendary 52-year-old is officially a grandmother.

“It’s official. I am now a granny. In 1987 I received such a gift of forever love. That gift has given me a blessing,” shared Evangelista on her Instagram post.

The gift she’s referring to is her former stepdaughter Roxanne Marie. In 1987, Evangelista married Marie’s father, Gerald Marie. He was the president of Elite Paris during her active years in the modeling industry. He acted as her agent throughout the remainder of their marriage before they divorced. Despite the divorce, Evangelista and Roxanne Marie remained close.
